Streaming service Acorn TV has the Australian premiere of crime series, London Kills.
From three-time BAFTA Award nominee Paul Marquess, the creator of Suspects, London Kills stars Hugo Speer, Sharon Small, Bailey Patrick and newcomer Tori Allen-Martin as a team of top murder detectives in the world’s most recognisable city. The five-part series, shot like a cutting-edge documentary, focuses on a different murder each episode, following the detectives as they uncover the truth behind the killing and an ongoing story involving the lead detective’s missing wife.
The world’s most exciting city is the backdrop for each of the murders investigated by an elite murder squad. This specialist group is headed by hugely experienced Detective Inspector David Bradford (Hugo Speer). He has just come back to work after compassionate leave – his wife has been missing for three months. David’s team comprises of ambitious Detective Sergeant Vivienne Cole (Sharon Small) who plays by her own rules, seasoned crime-solver Detective Constable Rob Brady (Bailey Patrick) and inexperienced Trainee Detective Constable Billie Fitzgerald (Tori Allen-Martin).
As the detectives solve each murder case – the staged suicide of an MP’s son, the mysterious death of a man on his stag night, a killing on a house-boat, a woman’s body washed up by the Thames, and the stabbing of one of his own team – the one case David can’t solve is the one most personal to him. Where is his wife? David’s emotional turmoil increases when, at the end of episode one, his wife’s bag is found at a murder victim’s home – how on earth did it get there? And does this mean that she’s alive or dead?
